Focus and Scope

The Canadian Journal of Practice-based Research in Theatre (CJPRT) is a peer-reviewed forum where theatre artist-scholars and/or educators can publish their observations on creative processes.

Practice-based artistic research is experiential, reflective and communicative. One of its main concerns is finding ways of making available for others the tacit knowledge that usually characterizes artists’ creative processes. By making such knowledge available for reflection and communication, the practice-based researcher participates in the production not only of art but also of new knowledge on procedures and creation/devising processes that may be of benefit to other theatre artists, scholars and pedagogues.


CJPRT welcomes submissions that explore strategies and techniques discovered in the process of artistic work. Potential submissions include: dramaturgical portfolios that illuminate choices made in a production process, discussions of creative strategies whether they failed or succeeded, reviews of shows that are the outcome of exploratory processes, reviews of books that introduce new methodologies of rehearsing and creating, and interviews with innovative theatre practitioners.


Methodologically, CJPRT welcomes case studies, interview studies, ethnographic and phenomenological approaches and arts-based research (narrative, performative, visual and poetic).


Submissions need not necessarily be in an essay format if the processes to be shared are better illuminated through poetry, story, audio or visual means.


CJPRT also welcomes submissions from aspiring artist-scholars for our Student’s Section. This includes layered reflections on in-class projects, public exercises and thesis shows that include unconventional and original approaches to text, rehearsal procedure or creation/devising projects.


CJPRT is an interdisciplinary journal and therefore written submissions may be in MLA, APA or Chicago style.
